The team and all luggage are out of the transit area of the Moscow International airport. We will head right back there tomorrow for our flight to the soaring peaks of the range of mountains called the Caucasus. But, today we explored Moscow and Red Square. We will take vivid memories of the Walls of the Kremlin, St. Basil’s Cathedral, the Jewels of the Armory Museum just to name a few.

A bit of the jet lag still with us but not slowing down this intrepid team of travelers.

Good Luck on the climb. The questions is, Lucy are you leaving Corell at the summit?

Welcome to Russia- although you experience started in the States!! You guys are well trained so enjoy the adventure! Correll- you look marvelous in 2 D. Have fun!

So glad Correll was able to make the trip and am delighted to find that she is now as tall as Laura.  You just can’t keep her down.
After the hand to hand combat with Delta, KLM and Air France, Elbrus should be a piece of cake.
As an added incentive, I am rescinding the “vodka shot if you talk about the mountain” rule for dinner in St. Petersburg…

Glad you finally made it.  What an adventure!  Sorry you missed Lenin, I was able to see him in 1979, I doubt he has changed much, a bit cold and stiff for me.  Rained every day since you left.  Finally the climb!  Good luck, remember polepole. 

We are all anxiously awaiting your reports.
